  1. 1. Design Technology Process Journal –Feb.21st, 2011<br /><ul><li>- Shape the wood by cutting it.</li></ul>Today, I finished cutting the wood in to the triangular shape, so I started shaping the wood by cutting it. It was much more harder than the previous step, because I had to consider stuff like how long should the gap be and which tool am I going to use etc.<br />Today I used some tools. Most of them are the same as the tools I used last lesson. I used a pencil, a metal ruler, a tenon saw, a tri square, and another saw, which is smaller than the tenon saw and the crosscut saw. This saw helped me make a smaller cut. It is a good way to use it when you need to cut a small gap.<br />I think I worked quite well this lesson, everything ran great! First of all, the teacher checked my reflection. The teacher said my reflection was quite good and the pictures and good. So I went into the workshop to start continue making my doorstop. I cut the wood that I didn’t finish cutting last lesson. It didn’t take a long time to cut it. After cutting the wood, I started drawing my design on the wood. This part was really easy. I drew it on the wood and took it to the teacher, but the teacher said it was too small, I should make it bigger. So I followed the teacher’s instruction and drew the shoe again. Next, I started shaping it. This part was a bit tricky, because I needed to consider the length of the gap I am going to cut, and also which saw I am going to use. The teacher gave me some help, he drew the guiding lines on the wood for me, so it was easier for me to cut it. I followed the guiding lines and I used the small saw to cut it. I didn’t finish cutting one of the lines I should cut, but I will be continue doing it for the next lesson.<br />I think today’s lesson related to two things. First of all for the learner profile, I think it related to thinker. I considered about all those things I have to notice, to make sure I was doing the things right. And for the Area of interaction, I think it related to human ingenuity, because all I was doing this lesson was working by myself.<br />This is me wearing a apron to protect my clothes from the dusts.<br />I used a pencil to draw my design on the wood.<br />I draw a diagonal line on the wood by using the metal ruler.<br />I used a tri square to draw a right angle.<br />I used the tenon saw to cut the wood in to the right size.<br />
